Standing 10 Minute Ab Workout Real Time: Melissa Bender

Hi Everyone,

I filmed two new workouts today. The first workout is a 10 minute standing ab routine. The video is below. This is a nice workout that doesn't require you to get on the floor, and has no traditional crunches. It will get you really sweaty, and workout your entire core without straining your neck. 

The second workout I am uploading is a 10 minute hamstring, thigh, and butt workout. These tend to be the major areas people worry about as summer approaches. Both of these workouts still hit all of the major areas of your body, but they focus on strengthening and toning the muscles in the areas I specified. 

I got to wear my new workout pants from bodyrock sport today! They are aptly called the "Melissa" pants. They are really comfortable, and very cute! 

I hope you enjoy today's workout!
